The delicious Chevrolet Corvette Z06
But I’ll go as far as to say that the Corvette’s awesomeness goes beyond its track numbers. Cars that have similar performance, though few and far between, don’t always carry the same street-cred as the Vette, at least in my social circles.
Then the fantastic small-block Chevy V8 showed up in ’55, and roll-up windows came along in ’56, and the Sting Ray rocked the country both stylistically and technologically in ’63. Year after year, the Corvette was the object of every real car guy’s fantasies. The older you are, the more of those memories you have. But even young people can’t deny the pull of America’s sports car.
The slideshow below has several pictures of the Corvette Z06. Some of them are my photos, or original pictures taken by my co-worker when we drove the Sunset Orange car in Arizona. Others are from General Motors. They all make me determined to earn more money so I can have one of my own.
